29…And Counting

September 26, 2011


This morning I pointed out to Mike that his birthday is only a few weeks away.  I asked him how old he would be.  He responded….”29″.  I laughed and said “uuuuhhh…you wish!  Since I am almost three full years younger than you, that would make me 25 now.  Do I look 25?”  Forget diplomacy.  He smiled and said “Nope.”  I asked what year he was born.  His response?  “1980. ”  I said “Noooooo.  We were married in 1980.  You were 30 when we got married.  When were you born?”  Again.  “1980.” OK.  Clearly a different approach was in order.  I figured some queing wouldn’t hurt and so I tried sentence completion.  “You were born….10-15-what?”  Finally.  He said “50.”  Seizing the moment, I said, “so if you were born in 1950 and this is 2011, how old are you going to be?” His response?  “Too old.”

Yep Mike.  Me too.
